“All Rise” for Wovenwar’s Debut Single

After announcing last week that the remaining members of As I Lay Dying would no longer be using the band’s name, but rather would form a new group named Wovenwar, they also confirmed that their first single would be making its debut soon. The band not only features Jordan Mancino, Nick Hipa, Phil Sgrosso and Josh Gilbert, but also Oh, Sleeper’s Shane Blay on vocals.

Like it has been stated, the band’s debut song has officially been released after revealing the news to eager and intrigued fans. The song, “All Rise” will be featured on the group’s self-titled debut which will be released sometime this Summer through Metal Blade Records. 

The announcement and the song’s debut comes almost three weeks after a long posted was uploaded to As I Lay Dying’s website that gave fans hope that the band would continue under their original moniker. As it was revealed a few hours after the original post, Mancino, Hipa, Sgrosso and Gilbert released a statement reassuring fans that they were not the ones to post the state, but rather it was former frontman, and current jail-bird, Tim Lambesis. 

Wovenwar aren’t letting the past affect their future; they already have a few tour dates under the new band name. 

WOVENWAR TOUR DATES:

08/15 Hasselt, BEL @ Pukkelpop
08/16 Hamburg, GER @ ELB Riot
08/17 Herford, GER @ X RockFest
08/21 London, UK @ The Barfly
08/22-24 Leeds & Reading Festivals

Bruce Springsteen and CBS Team Up for Album Debut

UPDATE: Stream the full album over at CBS.com here.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Amazon might be to blame for leaking Bruce Springsteen’s new album two weeks early, but that doesn’t mean that the Boss is going to let that stand in the way of releasing his songs through a television network.

Today, it was announced that Springsteen’s new album will be available for download through CBS’ website CBS.com, while the network will “highlight the disc’s availability on its website during a sneak preview after the January 5th episode of The Good Wife.”

The album, High Hopes, will then be available at CBS.com/Springsteen after the broadcast on Sunday, January 5 through Monday, January 13 at 7:00 PM EST.

In support of the advance streaming through the network, three of Springsteen’s tracks will be featured on the January 12 episode of The Good Wife.

This is the first time that such a promotional stunt as been attempted. A somewhat attempt similar to this was made last year by CBS for an episode of their hit, long-running show, CSI: Crime Scene Investigators. The episode featured none of the characters speaking, much like a silent film, but rather the music of Green Day taking the narrative of the episode.

As for High Hopes, it is one of the most anticipated albums of 2014 since its initial announcement. While the album won’t feature any “brand new material,” it does feature covers, rarities, and reworking of past songs. The album is set to be released on January 14 and will feature members of the E Street Band as well as guitarist Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine.

Carly Rae Jepsen to Make Broadway Debut

Carly Rae Jepsen

Call her, maybe?

Looks like Broadway did just that because it has been confirmed that Carly Rae Jepsen will be heading to the live theater stage. The pop star will be making her stage debut in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella on February 4 for a 12-week run. She will be replacing Tony-nominated Laura Osnes who is leaving the production after a yearlong run.

“Broadway has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl and I look forward to working with this incredibly talented cast to tell this classic tale,” said Jepsen, who began performing in musical theater while in high school.

This isn’t the first time the Canadian singer has done something princess-related. Last year, she was given the opportunity to cover the iconic Little Mermaid song, “Part of Your World” as part of the diamond edition release of the film on DVD.

Also making their official debut on Broadway in the revamped cast of the famous musical is The Nanny herself, Fran Drescher who will be taking over the role of Cinderella’s evil stepmother, previously played by Harriet Harris.

As for Jepsen, things have been quiet on her music front since the “Call Me Maybe” hype. She followed up the hit song with a single titled “This Kiss,” but it didn’t make quite the impression that breakthrough track did. Word has it that a new album should be coming out sometime in 2014.
